California Sage

About this design:

Tribute to Vince. This necklace is made for Vince Di Mura, resident composer at Princeton University and the best pianist I know, who gives me hours of pleasure with his music. I play his album, "California Sage", in my car. He is one of the few men I know who can wear this with a black ponytail and long silver earring in his left ear, and look even more devastatingly sexy and masculine. He has seen the photo, loves the necklace, so will receive same upon his arrival in Laguna Beach for his summer gig at the famous Laguna Playhouse.


Black Onyx, Green Jade, silver plated spacer beads and findings with large agate pendant.

    Wow! So beautiful … love the combination of beads with that wonderful pandant. I can imagine how they would look great on a male artist type.
